Autism Spectrum Disorder Evaluation

The Autism Spectrum Evaluation Clinic (ASEC) provides diagnostic evaluations for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or related conditions. We see children ages 3 and older, to evaluate social and emotional development, communication, thinking and problem solving ability, adaptive skills and behavior. 

Our teams have strong expertise in ASD and developmental disabilities. Teams may include a pediatrician, clinical psychologist, speech-language pathologist and family therapist or clinical social worker. Trainees from different fields often observe and participate in clinics.

Following an evaluation, we support families to find resources for their child. We provide recommendations for treatment or other evaluations if needed. If a child is diagnosed with ASD, we make referrals to other services in the Autism Programs at the CDD or to community services.

Medicaid or private insurance are billed for evaluations. The clinic is supported by the NM Department of Health.
